Sagrado Corazon De Jesus Group's story

Sagrado Corazón de Jesús is in its sixth loan cycle. Four of the women in the group ranked below the poverty line according to the poverty elimination survey: that is they are very low-earners.

Gracelda, another of the members, self identifies at the poverty level [See information below]. She notes that through her work she wants to improve her own life and that of her family. She wants to be able to help her family so they don’t have to experience deprivation. She sells fruits and vegetables and says that she has many good customers because she always has very good products to offer them. Her business is providing her the means to help her family.

She is requesting this loan in order to purchase vegetables and fruits so that she can continue to provide good produce and expand her customer base.

In this group: Nora, Maria, Zunilda, Mirta, Pablina, Ma.elisa, Florencia, Lorenza, Gricelda, Salustiana, Zully, Irene*
